Jackson County government is already struggling to pay its bills and provide basic services such as public safety and libraries. Priorities we all support. Measure 15-119 makes a bad county budget even worse. Voters should reject Measure 15-119 because it’s a cost we can’t afford when essential services and programs are already being cut.
A Cost We Can’t Afford
“The pain will only continue, and will get worse in the next few years as the reserves run out…Only the reserves are preventing even more severe cuts and, ultimately, a state takeover to prevent the complete collapse of county government.”
